You know that I strongly believe in getting all your free citations claimed and optimised. When you work with me, we’ll do all the main ones for you.
Here in Australia that includes StartLocal.com.au – which is a high-ranking (PageRank6) directory and lead generation site. So links from this site to yours are worthwhile. And people do use these sites. Most importantly, Google attaches a lot of importance to these citation sites.
Normally I say, do NOT sign up for paid advertising on any of them. Of course, they’ll ask you. Just say no.
Unless there’s a cast-iron, no-strings guarantee that it’ll work for you.
StartLocal have contacted me to say they’re offering that you can test out upgrading your business to a featured listing with no risk – other than your valuable time.
Here’s what StartLocal say:
“We track how many views business that are not featured listings miss out on.
Have you got enough customers? Have you got as much traffic as you want from Google and other online sources? It all comes down to what you want to achieve in 2014.
If you advertise with Google, clicks vary from $0.50 to $5+ per click. Getting an upgraded featured listing StartLocal listing is only a nominal monthly amount and there is no limit to the number of clicks you can get.
December is always a bit quiet as everyone is preoccupied with the holidays. Upgrading to a featured listing means you will have people from all the postcodes you choose able to see your listing instead of just being able to be found by people searching only in your specific suburb.
To upgrade to a featured listing is totally money-back-guaranteed if you aren’t happy with the results after 30 days. Just come on for a month so you can see how well it works for you.
The 10 (+10 bonus) postcodes option is available monthly for $49 per month.
The 20 (+20 bonus) postcodes option is available monthly for $79 per month.
The region (+bonus smaller region) option is available monthly for $99 per month.
How do the featured listings look?
Look for the yellow stars! You can also attach up to 20 keywords to your listing that you would like to be found for.
So what’s the catch? If you jump onboard and upgrade your listing to a featured listing and you aren’t happy with the value of the results then just let me know and I’ll personally put through a full refund for you.
You have full access to your stats 24/7 to see how many views, clicks and clicks into your website you’ve had. Just use your login and the password and you’ll have access in your portal.
I will be your account manager so you can call or email me anytime if you have any questions or would like feedback on more ways to increase your traffic.”
Now, normally I don’t recommend signing up to these paid citation sites.
But if you put a note in your diary for 28 days time… and cancel if you’ve not already had a great return for your money – and I mean at least 5x the cost in pure profit – then you’ve nothing to lose this time.
There’s nothing in this for me other than your success… I just thought you’d like to know.
But it’s only valid for the next few days … till the end of this month. So if you’re interested, give Jess a call directly on 02 8448 5003 (or 1300 785 706, option 1). If there’s anything you’re wondering about, just give Jess a buzz:
